His face has healed but it will leave an impressive scar. His breathing is a bit raspy and the vet says that his nasal cavity can be drilled out when he is older if its a problem. The only thing is that they drill away the bone and leave a hole that is only covered by skin . . I dont really like the idea of that . ..
He really is turning into a darling little boy and a real showoff! He has lovely movement and a great temperament. He is always the first one to come over for a big cuddle and a scratch. All of the other horses adore him and really look after him.
Manks is looking great too. I have had the saddle on her and she seemed happy enough. I lunged her for a little while and she was fine. Im not sure if she is broken in or not but I will get on her when somebody else is around, so I guess I will soon find out!! Sprat is three and a half months old now so I will give him another 6-8 weeks on her and then wean him and find Manks a new home. She is such an easy girl to have around and I think would naturally be a good doer, and at only 10yrs old I think she still has alot to offer someone. She seems to be quite worldly and pretty bombproof - so I dont think she has spent all her years in the broodmare paddock. Will keep you posted!
Oh and just because I can . . . here is a clip of Sprat playing fetch with his favourite toy. He doesnt play with his expensive foal-ball, but he loves carrying around pieces of wood! This was last week before the stitches came out.
